To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list in the Official Report for each highway authority in England (a) its bid for capital allocation and transport supplementary grant for 1988–89, (b) the allocation announced in each case, (c) the allocation as a percentage of the bid in each case, (d) the percentage of each authority's transport supplementary grant allocation attributable to minor works, for 1987–88 and 1988–89.

The capital allocations figures were given in my reply to the hon. Member for Burnley (Mr. Pike) on 11 January at columns 139–40. The figures for transport supplementary grant are in the following table:
